Yachting Sweden can provide you with Scandinavian crew.

Get a Scandinavian onboard

In 2018 the Swedish passport was number four on the Henley & Partners Passport Index, who annually rate the world’s best passports based on ease of travel and visa requirements. The Swedish passport gives its holders access to 189 countries, something shared with the Danish and Finnish passports. The Norwegian passport is not far behind at number five on the list. This makes the Scandinavian passports some of the easiest for captains to deal with onboard.

Many Swedes travel the world, which makes us a well-travelled nation with an excellent level of spoken and written English. From our experience, many previous colleagues and employers find that Swedes and Scandinavians are easy to deal with, diplomatic and hard working.

It is Swedish nature to respect the people around them and to be humble – this makes us great cabin mates! A Scandinavian addition to your crew is a great way of increasing the group dynamics onboard, giving your crew a new dimension to blend in with English, Australian or South African nationalities. Since the yachting industry is not widely known of in Sweden, Yachting Sweden arranges one day introduction courses where we equip our participants with all the necessary information in order to take their first steps in the industry.

So far, we have held courses with over 70 participants and many of them are now working on yachts. We have also been in touch with many Scandinavians, already working in the industry which as a result has given us a large portfolio of Scandinavian CV’s. Hopefully you now feel more convinced that employing a Swede or Scandinavian is a great decision. If you still want to know more, please contact us below.

About us

We are Helena and Lisa, and we are the founders of Yachting Sweden – a business based in Stockholm, Sweden. We have known each other since childhood, and discovered the yachting industry together. While Helena recently graduated with a degree in Hotel Management from Travel Education Center, Lisa is studying Medicine at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm.

After having worked onboard superyachts for many years, we both know the importance of always providing an excellent level of service, and well as being able to be a great team player in a hard working crew. During our time onboard, we have also realised how few Scandinavians are working onboard and we are now hoping to change that by becoming the first yacht crew agency focusing on providing Scandinavian yacht crew.

Are you looking for crew? Please feel free to contact us below, and we’d be happy to help.
